Central Lake District

The Lake District, England’s only true mountain area, derives its name from the spectacular natural lakes, or ‘meres’, which lie in green, glacially-sculpted valleys, surrounded by craggy peaks. This unique landscape, which has been nominated as one of National Geographic’s top ten ‘must-see’ destinations in the world, has an excellent network of well-maintained paths, which criss-cross the hillsides, give access to the mountain tops, and follow the lake shores, so we are able to offer itineraries for both ‘Easy’ and ‘Moderate’ grade tours.

The individual walks will depend upon the grade of the tour, however, they will all pass through the wonderful scenery of the valleys and lakeshores of the central Lake District, visiting Rydal, Langdale, the surging waterfall at Skelwith Bridge, and lonely Easedale Tarn. Memories of the breathtaking panorama from Loughrigg Terrace, and the superb view of Windermere and the Coniston Fells from Jenkin Crag will never be forgotten.

Unless you ask us to customise your trip, and choose alternative accommodation, your holiday in the Lake District will be based at a comfortable family-run guest house in the picturesque mountain village of Grasmere. Your room will have ensuite bathroom facilities and you will have a choice of continental or full English breakfast. Grasmere has a good range of pubs and restaurants serving meals in the evening.

If you prefer hotel accommodation we can arrange a room at The Inn at Grasmere (formerly the Grasmere Red Lion Hotel), a handsome and historic coaching inn which stands in the centre of Grasmere, close to the church where William Wordsworth, the Lakeland poet, lies buried. The hotel has a range of standard and deluxe rooms and suites, and the 1769 restaurant serves an attractive and varied menu. The additional cost for accommodation at The Inn at Grasmere will depend upon the room type chosen and whether you wish to include evening meals in the hotel restaurant.
